A TEMPLE INCOMPLETE, A HAREM and FOREST BATHING

Enchanted Forests

A  drive on Indian Roads/ Highways  is equivalent or similar to the  joy of a treasure hunt .

There are beautiful treasure boxes waiting to be  opened and discovered all along the way . All you need to do is to look and  watch the package dramatically open. The titles of each post/blog are teasers which you need to discover and unravel yourselves as you read on.

Having taken you  to a vast number of destinations , it is now  time for Shinrin-yoku.( a lovely Japanese term for Forest bathing ) . I loved the expression  from the first day i heard it.

We are off on a  drive from Bhopal ( do see the blog:http://www.travelwithmukul.wordpress.com) to the unknown   forests  of Satpura National Park , both located in the state of  Madhya Pradesh, the Heart of India.

It is  usually  a  180 km drive  but we are on…

There was a period where Watsons kept placing the Colour Riche lipsticks line on sale. Back then I was still on my nude lippies kick and searching for the perfect nude lip. Picked up Beige Sienna (BP401) and Peach Dream (C402). Wasn’t blogging yet at that point so I don’t have pristine pictures of these. Please excuse the well-loved lip bullets! 😉

Traveling the coast with a new guy

nannygrannie

I know many people who have done the Oregon Coast, or who see photos are immediately wanting to travel. My boyfriend and I recently did a 5 day road trip. We tented for 4 days, and stayed at a beautiful resort 1 night which was a real treat as you can imagine. Here I’m going to tell you where we camped, what we did and recommend places to check out. Warning: we aren’t really the type of people to lay on the beach, follow the crowds or go shopping so if that’s what you’re expecting…no.

The border of course! Since we were camping we thought it would be a clever idea to pack all our food in coolers so we didn’t need to make too many stops on the way down the coast. Let’s just say this: don’t bring unmarked eggs across the border. And if you ever do get…

Sensory Overload: Changu Lake

My Life

The Tsongmo Lake or Changu Lake is a glacial lake in the East Sikkim, India, some 40 kilometres (25 mi) away from Gangtok, the capital of the state of Sikkim. Its elevation is 3,780 m (12,400 ft). During the winter season the lake remains frozen.he lake surface reflects different colours with change of seasons. The lake is held in great reverence by the local Sikkimese people. Buddhist monks prognosticated the future of the country after studying the changing colours of the lake. As the lake is located in a restricted area it is essential for all Indians visiting the area to obtain permits. In case of foreign nationals special permit is essential. It’s better to go with travel agents because they will do all the documentation for our trip.Changu lake (10)Changu lake (7)Changu lake (5)Changu lake (9)Changu lake (2)Changu lake (1)

Places where sun never sets by Thomas Salzano

Thomas N Salzano | Thomas Salzano | Thomas J. Salzano

A 24 hour to 20 hour daytime which fluctuates per the closeness to the shaft, for an amplified time period, that basically implies that for quite a long time and months by and large it is brilliant and sunny! These spots clearly have a particular geological area, near to the shafts of the earth. This marvel happens on the grounds that the Earth is tilted on its hub by give or take 23 degrees. At the posts, North Pole and South Pole, this implies that the sun just ascents and sets once every year.

These phenomena are watched all the more close to the North Pole, the Arctic Circle, attributable to it having human settlements. What’s more, despite the fact that they likewise happen in southern districts close to the Antarctic Circle, inferable from it being a uninhabited landmass, it is just ever experienced by researcher missions or the odd…
